12:07 pm
>> last winter was so nice that anything now seems really miserable. this cold certainly is something we haven't seen in a very long time. today is day six of this cold snap. we have a couple more days and then we see a temporary improvement. this is the snowstorm we're talking about. not a huge snowstorm. the biggs problem is this area to the south. parts of tennessee and carolina. the stuff is falling as rain and then hits the group and freezes on contact. so that's causing very dangerous conditions on the roads in the south. looking into the future. throughout the afternoon, we'll see freezing rain and another three to four hours of this across the north carolina area. by the time we get towards 7:00, 8:00 tonight, going to be done, going to pull offshore. we'll see snow moving across parts of new jersey and new york city and a lot of areas impacted by sandy.

president today. a federal appeals court ruled that president obama violated the constitution when he sidestepped the united states senate to fill open spots on the labor relations panel. the court says the power did -- president did not have their power. the president said the senate was not in session. the course said it was. some analysts are calling this unanimous decision an emberrassing setback for the president. president obama said he made the appointment of the senate republicans blocked every single thing we did. >> they've idea a rule where they stayed in session but nobody was there. >> they have a couple of people come in and hold, literally, a minute session, and then recess for a couple more days and then old another minute session.
12:10 pm
they were doing this especially or specifically to avoid saying they were in n recess so the president couldn't make recess appointment. he said they weren't really in session so he appointed three people to the nlrb. this is a year ago, january of 2012. that's they've made hundreds of decisions, these three guys and another member of the board, and now the court says they were never actually appoint, which calls into question whether any of the decisions the nlrb made last year are legal? >> what happens now? >> it's one case that was one specific case of a business busn in washington state. so the question is whether it goes just to his case or all the cases. but i think you'll see anybody whole did not like a decision they made in the last year is going to now say, well, under this ruling, we shouldn't have to abide by that, either, and
12:11 pm
that's a good rope why it may good to the supreme court. interestingly enough, the same day he made that recess appoint end he appointed a guy named richard cordray, the job that elizabeth warrant started. and under the same legal reasoning these their kaye same. >> what did you think of manti te'o. >> i didn't think he was a very good linebacker. he had a good season. >> what about this girlfriend/not girlfriend thing know, interesting thing out there? >> well, you mean -- die think he made it up? >> yeah. do you think this is part of a hoax to get publicity? >> i watched a little bit of the katie couric interview yet yesterday, and i think he may just be dangerously naive. >> even when he tried to facetime with her and she wasn't there?

12:19 pm
lawsuit may change that. listen. >> this case, depending on how it's either settled or if there was a verdict, could change the responsibilities and obligations on these dating web sites to force them to do some sort of a cursory investigation on the individual they're putting on the site. as of right this second day don't need to. >> and right now, responds by saying, safety is very important to match. we list online and offline safety tips in multiple places on the site. we check, and they do in fact do that. >> shepard: loses this thing, man, i mean, they're down the road, these webses are going to be hard to have. >> they've lost before -- they've settled before. saying there was a previous lawsuit and it resulted in some changes back in 2011. a woman in california was sexually assaulted by someone she met on she sued, and they settled, in
12:20 pm agreed to check members against the national sex predator registry. and here's mary kay bettman. >> if i can save one person from not being in the situation that they're lured into with a false sense of security, or if i can save somebody from being hurt or making a different decision with their online dating choices, that's my goal. >> it could be a lofty goal. went online and not a single dating online program offers these full background checks. so it may not happen. >> shepard: trace, thank you. >> a new warning about deadly antibiotic resistance diseases. a problem so serious now one expert claims that before long, going to the hospital for simple surgery could be a death

anniversary of the changeover, the same scene, protests and violence. people say more than 1 been home were hurt in clashes between between police and demonstrators. the country is sill divided. the islasts are against the secular religions. jonathan hunt is here. hard to know whether egypt moved backward or forward. >> you can make an argument either way. we're just getting word via reuters that medics are saying in the city of suez at least four people have been killed by gunfire. and you look look at the square, they're saying the economy is the same and have swapped a secular dictatorship for another one. i spoke to a professor of
12:26 pm
diplomacy at harvard, and he said that who would have predicted two years ago egypt would still have a strong work relationship with the u.s., would have stood by the camp david peace accord so perhaps there's room for optimism. >> there is, i think, a ray of hope this keystone country, this very important country in the middle of the arab world, might be able to move forward, hasp in a very problematic way but not terribly destabilizing. >> listen to the caution in that as well. not tremendously destabilizing for the region. nobody knows the future. >> shepard: we don't have much strategy and the rest of the region is a disaster. >> of course, it is not just egypt we're concerned about right now. the events recently, the taking of hostages at the gas facility in al jeer a, set alarm bells ringing about the work of islamic extremists, and you look
12:27 pm
right across the region, libya egypt, tune knee should, algeria, and mali. and nicholas burns again said this could go on for lang time. >> we have to be concerned because america has direct interests stake and we care about the region and want them to proceed towards democracy and towards reform if that's possible. but i think your question is a very good one, because at the same time, we're looking at generational change, and it may be we don't see the future map of the middle east. doesn't reveal itself for another 10 for -- 10 for years. >> so probably chaos for another ten 20 years, who benefits? usually the extremists. >> shepard: so, you need a house? just go take one. the story of a squatter, a guy who just moved in to a
12:28 pm
multimillion dollar house, foreclosed mansion, and he just gets to live there the cops can't do anything. it's because of a crazy and quite an secure florida law. look at the house. there he goes. just hop right in there and live. god bless florida. coming up in just a minute.
12:29 pm
12:30 pm
12:31 pm
>> shepard: this is "studio b." it's the bottom of the hour. time for the top of the news.
12:32 pm
turns out you don't need to be a millionaire to live like one, not in florida. the guy who moved into his multimillion dollar mansion without paying a dime, doesn't own it, because of a bizarre loophole. police say the squatter set up house inside a foreclosure mansion. when the cops pulled up to kick him out, he pulled out the paperwork. under the old florida law there's nothing police can do about it. look at the neighborhood. just one posh place after another, and as you might imagine the squatters neighbors are not happy. one is so upset she is 2012 buy the foreclosed house as well. wow. what is this -- i don't get it. >> it is tough to understand, shepard. there is a 19th century law on the books of florida called adverse possession, and every year individuals or families try to claim abandoned houses inch
12:33 pm
most cases it's an individual or family looking for shelter and they choose a mid-foreclosed his in this case a 23-year-old pick ina mighty million dollar home in a tony neighborhood and he is posting his exploits on social media. >> shepard: what are the neighbors saying? it's boca raton, man. >> it's a mixed bag. some are actually saying, hat's off, but most are pretty angry about the situation. >> got to hand it to him. a beautiful place. no one else is living in there. >> most of the neighbors around this area are pretty active in the association, and they're not happy. nobody is happy. we all spent a lot of money. >> even as the eviction process against the map continues, he has to come up with 40,000 daz year in property taxes to try to hang on to this house for the
12:34 pm
next seven years. >> shepard: so if he can pay the property taxes he can just stay there. >> most of these case end in eviction. bank of america owns the house and say they're proceeding with eviction but he has the papers. police have been there and no one has kicked him out yet. >> shepard: thank you, steve. how did a law get on the bookness the first place? gary, don't get it. the palm trees look great behind you but you have to pay for this stuff. >> your sure do but the law doesn't want a perfectly good property going to waste. so if someone is going to good into a property and take care of it and the tax collect you're, they can live there and if they live there long enough without the real owner interceding they can make it a reality reality of opening it. >> people say you don't pay taxes in florida. this house you pay $40,000 a
12:35 pm
year, and that's the reason the law exists, they want their money. >> that has a lot to do with it. >> so if he comes up with themake there's nothing bank of america can do? what i they say we want to sell it? >> actually, back of america can file an ejectment action, and if they can prove there's a rightful owner, they can have him put out. >> if that's the case thanksgiving the law was protecting him. >> the law will protect him from being thrown out without the real owner interceding. opposite the real owner comes during the seven-year period they can have him thrown out. what happens often is the real owner never comes back or the bank forgets they own it. >> knowing florida real estate and what has happened over the last ten years, i'd surprised if a big red bank can prove
12:36 pm
anything. >> certainly going to ben a concern. >> i hope the gets to keep the house. bank of america doesn't need a house. >> if you're going to live in a house, live in one like this. >> i'm telling the homeless guy on the corner, in mat handat that time, get to boca, here's a bus ticket. a lot of houses empty in boca. >> there sure are. >> a man accused of dragging a sheriff's deputy with his car now faces all kinds of charges. look at the dash cam video. again, florida. the news could not exit's exist without florida. a security guard accused the suspect of stealing sunglasses and two tubes of lipstick. the deputy is trying to arrest the guy. but he gets back in the car and takes off. he pulled the deputy for like
12:37 pm
20 feet. law enforcement officers found the suspect in the attic of his own home, and just when he was about to surrender, he reportedly fell through the ceiling and into the garage. investigators say he tried escaping one more time for good measure. as the officer took him to hospital, he is under arrest. thank goodness the deputy is fine. >> now to the dire warning that antibiotic resistant superbugs could lead to an apocalyptic scenario. his words. doctors have been saying overuse of antibiotics creates drug-resistant diseases. but great britain's chief medical officer says the rise of such diseases could be as catastrophic as massive terrorist attack, a flu pandemic or natural disaster. researchers have been coming up
12:38 pm
with new antibiotics as the old ones stop working but there's concern the pipeline is running dry. with us now, dr. frank esper from university hospital of cleveland case weren't. is this overblown or is she on point? >> she is actually really on point. these germs have been around for a long time and we've been using antibiotic for decades. after year the germs are becoming more and more tolerant or even outright resistant to them. so the new generation office bacteria require new generations of antibiotics and we're getting to point where we no lowering have the new generations of antibiotic to combat the bacteria. >> we're worried about government drones and al qaeda and we ought to be worried about bacteria. >> it's not the bacteria are becoming more aggressive, but it's a fight between the patient and the infection, and it's a fight that can only have one
12:39 pm
winner, either you win or the germ wins. the antibiotic tips the scale -- the balance into the favor of the patient, and in some cases, some patients, they're really sick. the guy who just fell through the garage over there, okay, he is probably going to need some antibiotics if he has a lot of trauma and germs that came through the whole event. they need these antibiotics so that we can help them get through the infection. >> shepard: what are we supposed to do? >> the best thing to do, one is to assist drug companies in coming up with these new drugs, and new antibiotics. the large pharmaceutical injury has pulled back. they're no longer interested as much in trying to find the new antibiotic. so it's all these small little startup bio tech companies trying to make the new antibiotics. they don't have the ability, the financeses to make a lot of the studies, so we need to brick down the regulation a little bit. we need to also encourage new
12:40 pm
companies into risking some of their capital in order to develop this knew antibiotics and then we need to give them the leeway in order to make a profit after they make the antibiotics. >> shepard: the health official in great britain says in 20 years it's going to be dangerous to go to the hospital. do you think? >> i don't think it's going to be dangerous to go to the hospital. infections happen anywhere. there -- the reason the hospitals get a lot of rye sis stand organisms is because where i is where we see the sickest of the sick, the cancer patients and a transplant patient and people or steroids who don't have much immunity and they're dependent on the antibiotics to help them get through any infection. >> thanks so much. >> very good to be here. >> shepard: yesterday we reported that merchants in 40 states will be allowed to charge swipe fees. in other words, charge you more
12:41 pm
for using your credit card than cash, 4% more. now we're learning which businesses plan to actually forego the fee and help the customer. plus, afghanistan has long been the world's largest supplier of opium. the raw ingreedent for heroin. ever wonder how they smuggle it out? a new report claims afghanistan's national airlines plays a big role. afghanistan. it's their only cash crop. what are we doing? [ lisa ] my name's lisa, and chantix helped me quit.
12:42 pm
12:43 pm
i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. it put me at ease that you could smoke on the first week. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems,
12:44 pm
which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history heart or blood vsel problems, tell your doctor if you have new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. with chantix and with the support system it worked. it worked for me. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. >> shepard: seems everybody is in on it. u.s. officials are accusing a major afghan airline of using passenger planes to smuggle their drugs. according to the wall street journal, which our parent company owns, the largest airline in afghanistan has been flying opium in bulk on the same plane it carries passengers. the u.s. military has barred the airline from get anything
12:45 pm
contracts with our government. they don't need contracts with ourovernment. they're flying drugs oregon. afghanistan is the world's number one source of heroin. way above everyone else. hamid karzai's now dead brother was long suspected of being a drug kingpin. fox news sources confirm he was a kingpin. we reported yesterday at this time about new fees that stores can start charging you just to use your credit card. now we're hearing from retailers about whether they're planning to get onboard in the past the stores had to pay the fees to credit cards. beginning sunday the companies have been able to pass the charges on to customer, which they're already doing but they: ten states outlaw the fees in
12:46 pm
other 40 states there's nothing to stand charges from using using -- from using a card. >> they factor their fees in. they don't just get money from the heavens. so if they're going to lower the prices of all their stuff, then add the fee. but this ain't right. >> that's not happening. the other option is to charge a lower price to people paying car. but they're not doing that, either. that's one woman's view. hears what we're hearing. we called macy's, they said our company is not planning any credit card surcharges. >> planning. >> uh-huh. kroger says we continue to explore ways to innocentize shoppers to pay cash, and we also got an earful. they're so angry about this.
12:47 pm
they say the credit card companies are trying to make them look bad and not a single merchant wants to charge the identifies. >> it's like bag fees. the first time we jumped up and down, and then everybody started doing it. they're all going to do it. if they can get the money, they're going to do it. what do you think of manti te'o? i'm just more interested in that. charging the fees, maybe not tomorrow but they're going to charge them. >> i think, yuck. >> come on, what do you think? >> i think the whole thing is yucky. >> it's more than yucky. i cannot figure it out? >> who are these people who do this kind of stuff? >> i don't know. manti te'o, the most eligible person on the entire notre dame campus. >> eligible for what? >> eligible to date anyone he wants. anybody. he runs the football team. going to the national football league. a superstar. he is -- did you go to a

12:49 pm
